On today’s episode of Excellent Reception, we are looking at jazz musicians who have used their music as a way to transcend beyond the world we know by experimenting in the sub-genre know as spiritual jazz. There are almost too many noteworthy artists and songs to mention around this subject matter, but here are just a handful to get you started.
We’ll focus on these songs:
John Coltrane – A Love Supreme, Part 1: Acknowledgement
Alice Coltrane – Journey in Satchidananda
Sun Ra & His Arkestra – Space is the Place
Gary Bartz NTU Troop featuring Andy Bey – Celestial Blues
Michael White – The Blessing Song
